High Feast at Mount Michael -- Archangels

September 29 marks the Solemnity of the Archangels -- Michael, Raphael & Gabriel. Since the 29th of September fell on Sunday, we deviated from the rest of the universal church in regard to celebrating the the liturgy of a Sunday. We had readings of the Archangels. Today Monday -- September 30 -- we will again celebrate this High Feast with the whole Mount Michael Community. Below are some photos taken on Sunday morning of the environment in the chapel.

In monastic communities, one can observe what feast it is by what kind of meal is served in the dining room. On this Solemnity of the Archangels, the students enjoyed a great meal, topped off by pumpkin pie bars, made from this year's pumpkin crop.

Lastly, Fr. Dan Lenz has created the archangels to last forever. Fr. Dan carved the archangels from the marble altar that used to be in our chapel years ago. The Archangels are now in the abbey Oratory. They are awesome.
